The method I described will replicate the local address book (stored on your C drive) and send it wirelessly to your BB. On your BB, go in to your address book, and go to Options - make sure that wireless sync is set to "Yes".
A few things to note. There is a big lag in the time that you sync from your computer to actually seeing the change show up on your BB. You can try turning off wireless and then back on, that sometimes works, but often it is a 15 to 30 minute lag.
Also, you will not see the "wireless sync" until the BES server sees a DB for it to send to your device. That option will not even be there.
Anyway, hope that helps. If not, feel free to PM me as we use this a lot.
Thanks again for informing of this feature and elaborating on the details. I've never known about the feature. It works, as stated!
We may very well be able to have the user use less of the Desktop Manager.
If you are really use to wireless email reconciliation (where there is no user intervention the reconciliation just happens), there's a bit of a difference to this feature.
If you create a new contact in Notes or the BB device, you have to peform the Synchronize Address Book.
I believe I understand how the feature works now. The BB device doesn't actually wirelessly reconcile with the Notes address book that is saved locally on your computer.
New contacts in the Notes address book have to first be replicated or synchronized to the Domino/BES side (reason for selecting the "Synchronize Address Book" in Notes) ... then the wireless reconciliation happens with the device.
(And if you have new contacts on the BB device, it doesn't just wirelessly reconcile with the local Notes Address book on your computer. The new contact is first made known to the BES/Domino side. Then you pull that into your Notes address book by selecting the "Synchronize Address Book")
